“It's another evolution of the contemporary look we introduced last year, which reflects the growth of the team and the global brands with which we are working" said team manager Vijay Mallya. "I love the addition of silver, which makes the car appear more sleek and aggressive and I'm sure it's something that will appeal to the fans as well. Our traditional team colours remain integrated in the livery, but we've given it a very modern twist.”

Some of the changes in the VJM08 are-

1. Lowering of the front of the chassis and nose
2. Modified sculpting of the side-pods
3. New cooling intakes
4. New rear suspension layout with a new hydro-mechanical system
